My Filofax Week

My Week - Ending January 18th 2015

It's been quite a time since I've posted one but here's My Week.  I suppose lately it's become even more of diary (if that's possible) rather than just a place to keep my appointments. As you can see I had a very busy week last week with a hospital appointment and some blood tests at my doctor's surgery.  Also you can see that last week I used one of the diary pages I made from my Paperchase pad.  These pages are fantastic for using in my Songbird and so far no bleed through of ink.  Here is My Week and I hope you find it interesting.

My Week

Take care and I hope you all have a good week.

Until next time

Random Notes For My Filofax

What To Do With An Old Dodo

When I go to bed at night I'm always having thoughts for jobs that I need to do and don't want to forget.  What I've started doing recently is putting an old Dodo diary beside my bed for notes and then transferring the pages to my Filofax in the morning.

Inside My Songbird

This page is blank but some mornings I have filled the whole page with jobs and ideas.

As you may be aware I try not to waste paper and this I feel is an excellent way of using up an out of date diary that's never been used.  The rose at the top is just a post it note that I glued on to cover up an error I made on the page.

Until next time

The Many Uses Of A Paperchase Pad 

Firstly I would like to say Happy New Year to you all. Next I would like to apologise for my lack of posts in the last month or so.  Yet again I have been unwell.  The problem this time has been chronic fatigue and thyroid problems.  I've had these problems for some time but only been on medication for a week.  Also I have other medical problems which need to be resolved.  I've had a number of tests done and now I have to wait for the results.  I had some previous test results back recently and they have shown no serious issues.  I shall keep you posted when my test results come through.

For my first post of 2015 I want to share with you my purchase made yesterday at Paperchase. I bought myself this lovely weekly desk pad for £4.  This was half the normal price of £8.

Summer Odyssey Desk Pad With Sticky Notes

The to do section is excellent for exactly that purpose when I trim the paper to size and punch holes into the newly created page.

To Do Page In My Songbird

The notes section is also very useful when trimmed to size for all kinds of notes.


The other half of the notes section is useful for smaller notes.

I Want

The day section for notes is great for adding extra information into my Filofax diary area. Sometimes the week on two pages diary is insufficient.  This page can resolve the problem nicely.

Diary Notes

The desk pad sections are also excellent for using in my A5 Filofax organisers as my A5 Identity shows.

The pad has lots of pages so hopefully it will allow me to add pages to my Filofax organisers for quite some time.

Until next time
